EwE - Mushroom Sloppy Joes
This week's Eating with Ellie dish was chosen by Peggy. It is mushroom sloppy joes. Yep, even though this dish looks like a regular sloppy joe with mince, the "mince" is actually diced capsicums and mushrooms.
It sounds weird, and it smells weird, but it tastes OK. Certainly, the filling doesn't taste like beef mince, but it is a reasonable facsimile thereof if you happen to be vegetarian or just wanting to reduce the amount of meat in your diet.
Would I make these again? Unlikely. However, it was an interesting experiment, and I was fascinated how the predominately green vegetable mixture was transformed to something closely resembling mince.
